Join ARENA DANCES for our weekly Studio Stories podcast, where each week we reminisce on Twin Cities dance history with a new special guest. This week we continue our special CANDY BOX Dance Festival edition hearing from Happy Hour artist, Alys Ayumi Ogura.
Alys Ayumi Ogura is a storyteller through her movement, voice, and quirky humor. Her dance training began in Japan, studying from the late famed godmother of Japanese contemporary dance, Mika Kurosawa. Her choreographies and performances have been curated for the Walker Art Center’s Choreographer’s Evening by Megan Mayer, BodyCartography Project’s/HIJACK’s Future Interstates, and most recently completing residence as part of Naked Stages.
Tune in this Thursday, March 31 at 12:00pm to hear about the work Alys Ayumi Ogura is doing as part of the sixth Annual CANDY BOX Dance Festival happening May 2-7 at the Southern Theater.
